Types Of Respiratory Diseases :

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

    COPD is a common lung disease that blocks the airflow and makes it difficult to breathe. Damage to the lungs from COPD is very severe. Emphysema and Bronchitis are the two most common COPD conditions. Shortness of breath, wheezing and chronic cough are some of the symptoms of COPD. Since COPD symptoms do not appear till significant lung damage has already been done, most patients living with COPD do not come in for treatment till it reaches a critical point.

  • Asthma

    Asthma is a condition in which a person's airways become inflamed, narrow and swell and produce extra mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe. Asthma can be minor or it can interfere with daily activities. In some cases, it may lead to a life-threatening attack. Asthma may cause difficulty breathing, chest pain, cough and wheezing. The symptoms may sometimes flare up and can become fatal.

  • Pulmonary Fibrosis

    Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung disease that occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for the lungs to work properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, the patient becomes progressively move towards more short of breath. Pulmonary fibrosis can be caused by many conditions including chronic inflammatory processes (sarcoidosis, Wegener's granulomatosis), infections and environmental agents (asbestos, silica, exposure to certain gases).

  • Pneumonia

    Pneumonia is a form of acute respiratory infection that affects the lungs. The lungs are made up of small sacs called alveoli, which fill with air when a healthy person breathes. When an individual has pneumonia, the alveoli are filled with pus and fluid, which makes breathing painful and limits oxygen intake. Pneumonia is caused by a number of infectious agents, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. Pneumonia can become fatal if not treated in its early stages.
